Flash CS6 crashes on specific frame of particular file every time for no apparent reason.

Sep 13, 2013 11:10 AM

I have this file where Flash always crashes on the next to last frame.  It opens on that frame, and I can naviagate to any other frame, but as soon as I return that that particular frame, Flash crashes without any kind of error... the window just vanishes and the process ends.  Also, if I try to move the frame, it crashes.  Can anyone think of why this could be happening or how I might fix the file?


The file represents a lesson where each frame is a page, and each frame is labeled "p0", "p1", etc.  I noticed a problem when the hosting SWF that the lesson is loaded into was experiencing an error when the lesson would go to the last page.  When I opened the file, I noticed the last frame's label had gone missing.  So I added the label and saved the file.  Ever since then, the file crashes when navigating to the next to last frame.  It's very strange, although this isn't the first time I've clicked in a frame label text field to edit the frame label only to have the label disappear when the text field received focus.  Anyway, that may have nothing to do with this problem, but something about this file has to be corrupt and Flash crashes every time I navigate to the problem frame.

    HAve you tried copying the timeline into a new blank file?
